Perhaps, The Real Universes Are Also No Man’s Sky

This June, No Man’s Sky will be released on the 21st of the month.  This is one of those games that I can’t wait to get my game on.  The game is about an almost infinite galaxies and planets that you can travel to and explore.  From what I’d heard the travel between planets and galaxies is seamless.  An open world where wonders and monsters await, and each trip can be randomly dangerous.  If not prepare ahead, your next trip in No Man’s Sky may be a trip to hell.

Enough about the game, because I want to focus on something else entirely in this blog post.  I mentioned No Man’s Sky, because the game is special and unique since it would almost indefinitely generate new instances of parts of the universe that you travel through in your spaceship.  This means game assets and whatnot are going to be randomly created all the time through an algorithm.  This makes me wonder perhaps our real universe is also infinite.

When we escaped the planet earth, we suddenly realized the surmise of round earth is true.  We see galaxies, but we can’t get there.  We can’t really see the edge of the universe, because a simplest, smallest distance between earth and another planet is already too huge.  Just imagine an ant craws across a hill, and this ant must have thought that the hill is a galaxy.  How would the ant know that there is a universe in which humans are aim to travel across, right?

Imagine the real universe is also being instantly generated indefinitely, thus us humans would probably never be able to see the real edge of the universe.  Because, the edge of the universe would also be expanded farther and farther with no end in sight.  What if there are multiple universes that would never allow one realm to travel to another, but these realms are so different and have infinite generated instances?  Imagine the laws of physics would be so different from one realm to another.

I think as human civilization gets bolder with space, one day we may do No Man’s Sky for real.  Right now I can’t wait to play No Man’s Sky on PC, but our human civilization can’t wait to escape this space region.  I think nuclear power and the likes are progress, but only if us humans can be civilized.  Such technologies can catapult us humans out of this space region and go interstellar.  Nonetheless, we may go extinct if we can’t be civilized among ourselves.

I Dream Of Parallel Worlds

This is one of my fantasies.  I fantasize that whenever I dream while sleeping, I actually have a glimpse into a life of myself in a parallel world.  There maybe endless number of parallel worlds out there, and so I would have endless different dreams of this sort.  Although this is a fantasy of mine, but it does bring up the topic of how strange of a world when we scale things down to the level of quantum mechanics.

Quantum mechanics is a field in which people are studying things at a scale that cannot be seen with naked eyes.  Obviously, this is how I’ve described quantum mechanics, and it’s rather plain.  The official definition of quantum mechanics is much more elegant.  Regardless of the definition of quantum mechanics, the important point I want to point out in regarding to quantum mechanics is that it’s rather strange, because quantum mechanic scientists point out that matter can behave as both particle and wave.  This means matters in quantum scale (e.g., electron, proton, neutron) can be both particle and wave at the same time.

Quantum mechanic scientists use all sorts of experiments such as shooting individual electron through a barrier with slits to explain this duality behavior (i.e., behaving as both particle and wave) of quantum mechanical things.  So, it’s easier for us to imagine each grain of crushed rock as a particle, but it’s harder for us to imagine each grain of crushed rock as a wave.  Nonetheless, since each grain of crushed rock can multiply upon one another to form wave of grains, I guess we can imagine a dune or wave of grains of crushed rock.  Perhaps, we can make an assumption that the duality behavior of a quantum mechanical thing allows it as a particle to be multiplied into wave.  Or we can also say the potential of all things can be both particle and wave.  For an example, we can also realize the form of a thing in quantum mechanical level is also made of wave of particles.

From the realization of duality behavior of all things in quantum mechanical level, quantum mechanics scientists realize even stranger phenomenons such as spooky action at a distance.  Furthermore, from the realization of duality behavior of all things in quantum scale, quantum mechanic scientists reluctantly accept that the specific location of any individual quantum thing is uncertain.  This means a particle at quantum mechanical level would appear in place that is not so precisely predictable.  Wave may explain why a particle in quantum mechanical level is behaving this way.

How is all this has any relatable connection to my fantasy?  Well, my dreams are always appearing to be out of this world, because none of my dreams can make any sense when I’m awake.  While I’m asleep, these dreams strangely seem to be making sense as if I relive a part of my life in a parallel world.  Quantum mechanic scientists probably suspect that things on the scale of quantum mechanical level may be able to seep through parallel worlds if there are to be parallel worlds in reality.  Of course, I cannot expect my fantasy to become true, but I like to fantasize that my dreams are indeed allowing me to glimpse into the parallel worlds.

Imagination: Imagine, A Universe Is A Holy Womb Which Nourishes A Holy Infant

Here is another blog post of which I’m sure will stir up some controversies regardless of its actual intention.  I guess, I’m calling it another fantastical imaginary session.  I won’t say what I’m about to spew is actually my belief, because I intend for this piece to be pure fiction.  Nonetheless, some people might take this as something real and be offended by it.  For me, I imagine this fantasy piece is of science fiction meets fictional Gods.

Anyhow, just imagine in a world that there are many Gods.  Before a new God can spring into the existence, God must be born.  Before God must be born, a hot soup of universe nourishes the planets, stars, black holes, and countless other energies.  In a way, we can imagine that each universe is a womb that nourishes a holy infant.  When the universe gives birth to a holy infant, the holy infant would become God eventually.  After the birth of a holy infant, the specific universe would cease to exist.

For those who think this is rather offensive to your religion, just think this is a writing of a fantasy, science fictional kind of writing.  For those who like to believe if there is some truth to this, you need to know this is just an imagination.  Make up yours!  OK?  This piece isn’t about religion, but it’s more of a fantasy prose where science fiction meets fictional Gods.

Afterthought:  In a way, isn’t it cool if a sperm knows that in its entire lifespan, it’s working toward the goal of creating a human being when it penetrates the egg?

How Energy Was Created In The First Place?

From a person who has very little knowledge of science, but I do often wonder about the weirdness of the law of conservation of energy.  Obviously, the law of conservation of energy is indeed making sense since people are using this very law in many applications.  Still, I have to wonder, if energy can neither be created nor destroyed, then how energy was created in the first place?  Sure, you can always use the big bang theory and say that it must have been the singularity that created everything, and then the whole phenomenon must have set a universal law which prescribed that energy could neither be created nor destroyed.  This argument somewhat helps us ease our mind a little on the subject, but the question persists, and it has morphed into this — how singularity was created in the first place?  Of course, I don’t think anyone now can answer such a question, because our current technology is still gazillions of light years away from having the capability of allowing us to take a peek inside what had created the singularity.  We might need a second Einstein to help us solve this very question.
